Our Division is primarily responsible for the trauma program and surgical critical care service at Froedtert Hospital (FH). We provide surgical services for the benefit of our patients and professional colleagues twenty four hours each day, seven days a week. Our Trauma Center excels in the care of patients with injuries, complex wounds, surgical infections and patients requiring surgical critical care. While our major academic focus is trauma and critical care, we maintain an active general surgery practice and are pleased to offer our special expertise in the areas of laparoscopy, endoscopy, surgical infections, and gastrointestinal surgery. We provide all emergency surgical coverage to the emergency department at FH. All faculty have their general surgery boards with added qualifications in critical care from the American Board of Surgery. Research activities focus heavily on measuring patient outcomes after injury, cost-effective medical care, surgical infections, disease modeling, and surgical education.

Marc A. de Moya, MDWe would like to be the first to recognize our new Division Chief, Dr. Marc de Moya.

Dr. de Moya is currently Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and Chief of the Churchill Service at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. de Moya is also an Associate Program Director for their general surgery residency. He will succeed Dr. John Weigelt, whose contributions to this campus have been invaluable to the success of the Department of Surgery. Dr. de Moya is a graduate of Seton Hall University and Temple University School of Medicine. Following his general surgery residency at St. Barnabas Medical Center, he completed a fellowship in trauma and critical care at the University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital. Dr. de Moya has spent his entire faculty career at MGH and Harvard Medical School where his clinical and translational research has focused on both patient and systems response to injury and critical illness.
